We Professionally Clean Most Commercial Floor Types
Sealing, Stripping and Re-finishing VCT Floors
Maintaining a vinyl composition tile (VCT) floor is important for preserving its appearance and extending its life.
One of the most important ways to maintain a VCT floor is to seal it, strip it, and wax it on a regular basis. Sealing protects the floor from dirt and dust, while stripping removes built-up wax and dirt. Waxing then protects the floor from scratches and makes it easier to clean in the future.
Luxury Vinyl Floor Cleaning
Sheet vinyl is a type of flooring that is made from a single piece of material. It is usually available in rolls or sheets, making it easy to install. In addition, sheet vinyl is very durable and easy to clean. As a result, it is an ideal choice for high-traffic areas such as kitchens and bathrooms.
The advantage to vinyl sheets is that they’re easier to wipe down and don’t have visible seams where dirt and moisture can accumulate. It isn’t as durable as VCT, but it’s a lot more flexible.
Sheets of vinyl are between 6′ and 15′ wide, meaning they cover larger areas with fewer seams than tiles.
Few commercial buildings use it, but those that do find that it’s a material that holds its finish nicely. The downside is that the vinyl is harder to maintain, and the worn out layer will need to be stripped before a new layer of flooring can be laid down.
Cleaning it with a neutral detergent is recommended for this type of flooring.
Linoleum Floor Cleaning
Linoleum has been around since the 1800s, and it’s a tough material that’s made with natural ingredients.
It’s a rubber-based flooring, meaning that it’s eco-friendly. It looks similar to vinyl sheeting, but it’s a lot more durable.
It is a very porous material, so commercial tile floor cleaning services will need to keep the linoleum properly finished.
Neutral detergent is also recommended as the cleaning agent of choice, as strong chemicals can bleach the linoleum and cause it to fade.
Glazed Ceramic Tile Cleaning
The durable surface of glazed ceramic tiles are chip-resistant, and the glazing provides those walking on the tiles with a lot more traction.
The tiles are easy to keep clean, and they are resistant to scratches and stains of all types. The beauty of this type of tile is that the coloring doesn’t fade, as the finishing protects the color.
However, no floor finished can be used on the tiles, and only an all-purpose cleaner or neutral detergent will clean the tiles properly.
Unglazed Ceramic Tile Cleaning
Quarry tile is another name for unglazed ceramic, a stone tile that is very durable. As far as maintenance goes, these tiles are some of the best and easiest to keep clean.
The tiles are often a deep red (brick), and they are commonly used in areas where food is being produced and served.
The tiles can be finished with any of the commercial floor cleaning and finishing products on the market, though it’s recommended to avoid finishes if the tiles are used in food-service areas.
Eccothane is a product that is highly recommended for use if the tiles are installed in stairways and halls, or a neutral detergent is another option.
Grout is notoriously difficult to clean, and trying to do it yourself can be a frustrating experience.
Our team of experienced professionals use state-of-the-art equipment and cleaning products to get your grout looking like new again.
In addition to improving the appearance of your property, regular grout cleaning can also help to extend the life of your tile flooring.
Concrete Floor Cleaning
While not usually beautiful, concrete is durable, practical, and long-lasting. It is usually covered with another flooring material, but plain concrete floors are becoming more popular.
We provide professional concrete cleaning services for a variety of businesses and organizations. Our team is experienced in the care and maintenance of this type of flooring, and we use the latest equipment and techniques to get the job done right.
